Research & Evaluation at the Los Angeles County Arts Commission

2016-17 Report

Bronwyn Mauldin

Research and evaluation are core competencies at the LA County Arts Commission, as central to the mission as grantmaking, arts education, civic art, professional development and communications. The Research and Evaluation (R&E) division helps to ensure the Arts Commission’s programs are rooted in facts, based on evidence and build on promising practices from others in the field.

The data we collect help us understand the impact of the Arts Commission’s work and to reflect on what has been learned, in order to improve. The R&E team serves every division and the entire Commission, while also providing information to the arts ecology as a whole. At the same time, it also functions as an internal program, planning and executing its own research agenda.
